๐Ÿ“ Input format

You can configure the input options to get exactly the results you want:

  • ๐ŸŽฏ Targets
    • ๐Ÿ”— Place URLs
    • ๐Ÿ†” Place IDs
    • ๐Ÿ’พ Dataset ID
  • ๐Ÿ“ธ Max photos per place
  • ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ Max photos per category
  • ๐Ÿšซ Ignored categories

Each of these options is explained further below:

  • ๐ŸŽฏ Targets
    • You can use a sharing URL for a place or use its Place ID to scrape reviews. You can supply a list of URLs and Place IDs at the same time and you will get results for all of them.
    • If you are using the the Advanced Google Maps Scraper Manager to find places to scrape, use the integrations tab in the manager actor to trigger this scraper automatically when places are found
  • ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆโ€๐Ÿ‘ฆ Max reviews per place
    • How many reviews to get before stopping. The scraping will take longer to complete the higher this is set.
  • ๐Ÿ“ธ Max photos per place
    • The maximum total number of photo URLs to collect
    • This number will be divided across the categories, so photos from all categories are collected
    • The actual number of photo URLs in the result may be lower than max photos:
      • if the total number of photos for the place is lower than max photos
      • or, if some categories have fewer than max photos divided by max categories, e.g. if max photos is 100 and there are 5 categories, max photos per category is 20, but if one of the categories has only 5 photos, only 85 photos in total would be collected
  • ๐Ÿ—‚๏ธ Max photos per category
    • can be specified if you do not want it to be automatically calculated
  • ๐Ÿšซ Ignored categories
    • Any categories you do not want to collect photos from
